STA Monthly Meeting – March 2021
The STA is looking forward to hosting Niels Kaastrup-Larsen at our March event. Niels has been in the managed futures business for over 30 years but he is perhaps most widely known for the Top Traders Unplugged podcast that he started in an effort to “democratise the hedge fund industry” and offer guidance and opinions on running systematic trend following models to a wider audience.
The STA’s own Alistair Philip will be introducing Niels who will give a brief overview of trend following and then have more of a fireside chat with Alistair to encourage an open discussion and dig into some of the benefits and drawbacks to running systematic trend following models as well as take questions from the audience.
Niels quite openly shares a wealth of information with his listeners, most recently deep diving into the details of how they designed the trend following system they ran at his CTA which managed up to $100M for clients.
Questions from the audience will be very much encouraged and we invite members to send questions ahead of the event to email@example.com with the subject “Questions for Niels” and we’ll be sure to include them.
Niels has been in the managed futures business for over 30 years having held management positions in and started multiple CTA firms. He is now the Managing Director of DUNN Capital (Europe) which has an impressive track record going back […]

The main reason for ineffective strategy construction which leads to non-reproducible results in real time and hence inconsistent performance is due to not knowing the 3 critical strategy stats.

With this framework we will have the 3 critical stats to help us construct optimal entries, stop loss and exits. When this is further combined with volume, our probability of capturing the bigger runners increases. All of the above will be explained further in detail by the presenter.
